You will never look at dinner the same way
Food, Inc.This controversial film lifts the veil on our nation's food industry.
Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger, better, longer lasting food but we also have new strains of e. coli, are riddled with widespread obesity and have an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
A Note About Funding
In past seasons, most of the funding for the Peace & Justice Film Series has come from ASUM, the Associated Students of the University of Montana. This year, without explanation, ASUM cut our funding by 94%, from $2,000 per year to $120 per year. We desperately need your help to continue!
